- For each Rune you collected in April, your Memory Rune will gain +10% All Damage.
- For each time you used your Jade Beetle laser, your Memory Rune will gain +5% to Gold dropped.
- If you are just beginning, or if you skipped playing in April, your Memory Rune will be set at 10% damage, 5% gold.
The Bonus RuneAs always, the bonus rune you can stockpile after filling the board is Endless Rush.
May Special Runes
Horizontal BoostThis rune doubles all of the normal runes that share the same row. For this month, that means doubling:
- 1 Amethyst I
- 1 Emerald I
- 1 Garnet I
- 1 Garnet III
- 2 Gold I
- 2 Gold II
- 1 Trinity I
Vertical BoostThis rune doubles all of the normal runes that share the same column. For this month, that means doubling:
- 2 Amethyst I
- 1 Amethyst II
- 2 Emerald I
- 1 Garnet II
- 1 Gold I
- 1 Gold III
- 1 Trinity I
- This rune increases "gem bonus" by 20%.
- It is not a multiplier of overall gem bonus as calculated by your Gene Tree and Gene Lab bonuses to Gem Damage %.
- If you recall, the "base" gem bonus without any Genes or Gene Lab is 10% per gem.
- If this Gem Power Rune increases you by 20%, then it only adds 20% of that base 10%, or 2% overall to the per-gem bonus.
- Think of it as getting two free levels of Gem Specialization in the Gene Lab.
- This rune says it adds 25% to your ability timers - 50% total if you get both of them.
- Abilitiy timers as in Smokescreen, Shadow Swarm, Queen Frenzy, etc.
- In true Crab War fashion, they don't mean your modified ability timers, they mean the default ones - 30 seconds.
- So this +50% only adds 15 seconds.
- For Leech that's awesome because there is no other way to raise it - but for a 45+ minute Shadow Swarm, +15 seconds is spitting in the ocean.
